Kacey Musgraves – Blowin’ Smoke (testo)


“Between the lunch and dinner rush
Kelly caught that outbound bus for Vegas
We’re all out here talking trash, making bets
Lips wrapped round our cigarettes
She always thought she was too good to be a waitress

Well, we all say that we’ll quit someday
When our ship comes in
We’ll just sail away

But we’re just blowin’ smoke, hey yeah
We’re just blowin’ smoke, hey yeah
Out here goin’ broke, hey yeah
We’re just blowin’ smoke

Well Janie got divorced again
Her ex-husband’s in the pen
From two to five, five to ten and longer
Brenda’s traded smokes for cake
Still hadn’t lost that baby weight
And that baby’s about to graduate
From college

I’m just flicking ash
Into the tray
Tell them both it’ll be okay

But I’m just blowin’ smoke, hey yeah
I’m just blowin’ smoke, hey yeah
I’m out here goin’ broke, hey yeah
Yeah we’re just blowin’ smoke

We all say that we’ll
Quit someday
When our nerves ain’t shot
And our hands don’t shake, yeah
We all say that we’ll
Quit someday
When our nerves ain’t shot
And our hands don’t shake

Wipe down the bar, take out the trash
Light one up and count my cash
Swear I’m never coming back again

I’m just blowin’ smoke, hey yeah
I’m just blowin’ smoke, hey yeah
Out here going broke, hey yeah
Yeah we’re just blowin’ smoke”.

Blowin’ Smoke is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Kacey Musgraves. The song is featured on her major label debut album, Same Trailer Different Park. It was released April 1, 2013, as the album’s second single. It was written by Musgraves, Luke Laird, and Shane McAnally. As of July 10, 2013, the single has sold 135,000 copies in the United States.
The song is about a waitress who is “down on her luck” and aspires to do better, but is “just blowin’ smoke”. The title is a double meaning, referencing the fact that the waitress is smoking a cigarette while also playing on the term “blowing smoke”, which Musgraves refers to as meaning “talking shit”. The song opens and closes with the ambient noise of a Waffle House restaurant, recorded by co-writer and co-producer Luke Laird.
Billy Dukes at Taste of Country said “every element of ‘Blowin’ Smoke‘ works together to fill in gaps in a listener’s mind, especially one who’s never behind the bar or in front of a line cook, nervously tapping on a steel counter while their table’s food is prepared. The peculiarity of subject matter may prevent this single from being a chart-topper, but one gets the feeling that’s not the singer’s measure of success anyway”. Matt Bjorke at Roughstock said the song “features an interesting story about how we all say we’re gonna do things and change our lives but we end up not doing it. It’s honest and real, unlike so much of Today’s music”. Daryl Addison at GAC says “Kacey sings with more than a hint of her character’s jealous contempt, we’re all out here talkin’ trash, makin’ bets, lips wrapped ’round our cigarettes, when a fellow waitress follows her heart to Vegas”.
